Catching cheaters and liars is a lucrative hobby--until you fall for one of the suspects. Perfect for fans of Veronica Mars, this new novel from the author of Last Year's Mistake will steal your heart! Marisa never planned to be a snoop for hire. It wasn't like she wanted to catch her best friend's boyfriend making out with another girl. But as her reputation for sniffing out cheaters spreads all over school, Marisa finds herself the reluctant queen of busting two-timing boys. And her next case? It's for ex-frenemy Kendall. She's convinced her boyfriend, TJ, has feelings for someone else and persuades Marissa to start spying on him. But the more Marisa gets to know sincere and artistic TJ, the more she starts to fall for him. Worse yet, the feelings seem to be mutual. Marisa knows she needs to give up her investigation--and the spoken-for guy who may just be the love of herlife. Then she uncovers new secrets about Kendall and TJ, secrets that take "cheater" to a whole new level...… (mere)

This is a cute quick read. Marisa had not planned to catch her best friend's boyfriend cheating, but when the opportunity came, she took it. When a former friend moves back Marisa gets involved in a convoluted plan to catch cheaters--both the romantic and academic kind. Reputations will be ruined and restored when all the pieces fall together. ( )

Busted has everything you want from a young adult book; plenty of drama, a bit of swoon-worthy romance, a heaping pile of cuteness and friendship. Gina Ciocca has given readers a unique storyline with Busted, perfectly combining teens over-use of internet and social media with all the angst that comes from dating in high school. Main character and narrator, Marisa, is your quintessential high school student. She's trying to fit in, make good grades, participate in extra activities that will look good on her transcripts, spend time with friends, and, of course, navigate the tough world of dating. She's sweet, a bit naive, occasionally petty, and an overachiever at everything. Helping protect one friend from relationship disaster has turned into helping every girl from the same fate, but an old friend seeking to insert herself back into Maria's life may be using her for more than she realizes. She didn't plan on becoming her town's very own PI, but she embraces the role and finds herself becoming the center of her very own investigation.

"I heard you caught her boyfriend cheating."

Busted felt so much like my high school experience. At times, Marisa seemed to lack direction and focus, something that could have taken away from the book, but really felt accurate to how teenagers truly are. She placed a very high value on what others think of her, something that leads to her downfall later on and becomes a huge lesson for her. I really enjoyed the sneaking around and loved how much weight relationships had on the characters. We saw old friendships, best-friendships, the wrong kind of friendships, friends becoming something more, exes, boyfriends, siblings, parents, and everything in between. It is obvious Gina Ciocca went to great lengths to give readers a complex, character-driven novel, something I find a lot of YA novels lack.

"I only knew that it felt more like a promise than a parting of ways."

Busted might require you to write a map to get through it, but otherwise it was one of the best YA novels I have read in a while. It had just the right amount of drama, it didn't blur the lines between YA and NA, and it delivered a couple positive messages that I think youths should hear and we all can appreciate. If you're a fan of fast-paced, contemporary young adult, Busted needs to be on your TBR list.

Busted was a fun read. It was cutesy, dramatic, and so easy to read. I was initially drawn into the story because of the PI situation the protagonist, Marisa, finds herself in. And I ended up liking all the spying, scheming, and the tangled web of secrets that starts to come unraveled in a natural way through the story. I really liked Marisa’s jewelry making hobby - it’s something I’ve dabbled in myself and a unique hobby we don’t normally see in YA. But there was also a lot of pettiness and immaturity that kept me from really loving the book. Characters were called on their actions, and others apologized for theirs - and I really liked that a lot, but the blatant immaturity and selfishness was a little much. Overall, this was a fun read and was the perfect inbetween book for me to read between 2 SFF stories.

I received a copy of the book from Sourcebooks Fire via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. ( )
